Timed with the outbreak of World War I, this ill-fated expedition is something to behold. The original plan was to have two teams work their way across the frozen wastelands of Antarctica. That never came to fruition for either team. Then, after endless months stuck on ice floes, Shackleton and a rag-tag team set out in a small open boat across the open ocean in an attempt to save everyone. The unlikely end is something to behold.
“At midnight I was pacing the ice, listening to the grinding floe and to the groans and crashes that told of the death-agony of the Endurance, when I noticed suddenly a crack running across our floe right through the camp.”
The fate of Ernest Shackleton, the Endurance, and her crew have been studied for over a century. Shackleton’s exploits have been turned into movies. His leadership style has been adapted into training programs for major corporations.
